Project Management, Ontario Graduate Certificate

Humber has played a pivotal role in my career development. During my time as a Humber student, I had many opportunities to hone my skills and connect with the industry professionals and build lasting connections. I am also fortunate that I chose a college that has strong ties with the project management industry as that was a steppingstone for me.

I now work as a Project Coordinator at Talent Minded, a recruiting company. I came across the opportunity on a job search website called Indeed and after a competitive process, I was able to land a job there.
